Recipe Notes

Test Kitchen tips

  • Five-spice powder is primarily used in Chinese cuisine and is a mixture of spices, including star anise, cinnamon and cloves. Look for it in the spice aisle of your grocery store.
  • You can freeze large pieces of unpeeled gingerroot in a zip-top bag. When you need some, simply grate the frozen ginger and pop it back in the freezer. No more shriveled ginger in the bottom of your produce drawer.
